Coming Soon !! Team ESST May Shopping Extravaganza

The Etsy Supply Street Team - ESST - is proud to announce the "May - First Weekend Shopping Extravaganza".The May event will run from Thursday, May 7th - Sunday, May 10th, 2009. ALL ETSY SHOPS - HANDMADE, SUPPLIES AND VINTAGE - are invited to participate by placing an announcement in your shop and joining in with promoting on the "Official" Promotional thread in the Etsy Forums.This will be a “Shopping Event” similar to a Public Marketplace. There will not be a "Overall theme" since Etsy is a Global Marketplace hence, the seasons, cultures, holidays, etc. can vary quite a bit. Although not required, we do strongly encourage shops to have a feature, theme or sale as this can pique interest and help you to draw people to your shop. You do not have to participate for the whole weekend simply join in when you can on the Promo thread in the Etsy Forums. You can search for the official thread - “MAY FIRST WEEKEND SHOPPING EXTRAVAGANZA MAY 7TH-MAY 10TH”. Here is the Promo thread in the Etsy Forums: Will be posted once the Extravaganza has started!The only requirement is that you have a shop on Etsy and help promote by joining in and bumping the thread throughout the weekend. Talk about your shop and what you have to offer our shoppers. Those of you who blog or twitter can post and/or tweet about it and promote to people that are off Etsy to visit us. It will provide the Etsy community with publicity, making our shops more visible, and hopefully creating a monthly event shoppers will look forward to. If you have any questions please convo the Etsy Supply Street Team

OK, now that I have your attention! CarDon and Co. (all of our Etsy shops) will be Celebrating our 2nd Anniversary for CarDon Creative Design shop. Mom and I started our first shop on Etsy two years ago as of April 3rd.

Wow, those 2 years have flown by! In those 2 years we have switched from selling at home parties our finished jewelry and selling jewelry on Etsy to selling jewelry supplies and have opened 3 more shops. Yup, we have been busy girls.

We invite you to come and help us celebrate our anniversary! All of our shops will be apart of the sale. CarDonCreativeDesign our jewelry supply shop, GramsVintageButtons for vintage and crafting buttons, LottieMaesVintage has great vintage finds - dishes, linens, jewelry, clothes, and more. Our newest shop - CarDonsBitsandPieces carries...well, bits and pieces, great items for your altered art, mixed media and craft projects.

Now the good part the Sale!! We are giving 20% off any order over $10 (that doesn't include shipping - just the merchandise) and if your order is over $40 (not including the shipping - just the merchandise) we will give you the 20% discount and free shipping. We will return the savings to your PayPal account or you deduct it from your Money Order.

You can combine orders from all of our shops too! Just let us know in notes to seller that you have placed an order with another shop.

Sale dates are April 2nd to April 5th.
